IPL 2021 in India? Sourav Ganguly says BCCI monitoring COVID-19 situation
Posted 25 Nov 2020 12:17 PM


BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has revealed that he underwent 22 COVID-19 tests in the past four-and-a-half months, as he traveled to the United Arab Emirates on a number of occasions throughout the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League.

Ganguly said that he had people testing positive for COVID-19 around him, which forced him to take multiple tests.
"I must tell you I have got tested 22 times in the last four and half months and not been positive even once, I have had cases around me, so that probably forced me to get tested myself," Ganguly said at a virtual media conference for a brand promotion.

"... I stay with elderly parents and I have travelled to Dubai and in the initial part, I was very worried, not just for me, but the community, you don't want to spread it to somebody else because people are looking up to you."

Ganguly also talked about India's upcoming tour of Australia, which begins on November 27. Team India left for Australia on November 11 and is currently in its last day of quarantine.

"...the players are fit and fine, Australia also doesn't have a very high number of COVID cases, the borders were closed for a while...they are still very, very tight on international travel, you have to do 14 days of hard quarantine, so the boys are ready to get onto the field," Ganguly said.
